The view from Indian Hill

Seems to me that at some point I read an essay about Indian Hill by Annie Dillard, but I don't recall much about it. I've got to dig it out for a re-read.

After a father's day breakfast, and a visit to Central News where Bill, Kevin and Dom greeted the boys, and I chatted with Dave briefly about the course of town politics, we headed off for an early walk through the Indian Hill cemetary. According to Liz Warner's great history of Middletown, it was the vestigal settlement of Chief Sowheag and the Wangunks.

Does anyone in Middletown know why there are no gravestones at the crest of the hill?
